Stand Alone

Week Ten/Fifty-Two
 "A portrait of my child(ren), once a week, every week, in 2014" 
Okay, so I'll concede. This whole picture taking, with my big girl camera, thing is proving more difficult than I had ever imagined it would be. I remember thinking, how difficult can it be to take a minute to snap a few (good) photos of my kids? As it turns out...very. Part of the problem is that my primary subject is constantly on the move these days. Part of the problem is that I am sick of photographing said subject in the same spot (read: indoors because Maine in February. And now because Maine in March). Part of the problem is that every single time I think to snap a photo, my subject is wearing the same thing that he was wearing the last time I posted a 52 Week Project picture. So you see...several problems.
And already I've missed the Week Ten deadline, but I definitely wanted to document the following. Even though I took the pictures on my phone. But for some reason, this is a big deal to me. I've been denying my baby's growing up. But now. Now he stands. Which means soon he walks. Which's over. Done. Babyhood is gone and I've lost the battle to keep him snugly and tiny and babyish forever. And since I know my husband will dutifully read this post, I'll dare to say...standing means it's time for another. What's one more when you've already got four?
My baby turned ten months old on Friday. The same day that my oldest daughter and I lost our minds and subsequently forgot to get the dslr out to take real pictures of THIS:
